Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

[automatically translated] In Book II of the "Chronicon Novaliciense" (sec. XI) the anonymous chronicler tells of the life and business of Walthario, star of the post-Carolingian epic poem "Waltahrius" (of which the author of the "Chronicon" cites several steps) , who became monaco at the monastery of Novalesa and therein distinguished for strength and courage. The narration of the events are in charge Walthario four elegiac couplets (inc. Vualtarius fortis) compounds, as the chronicler says, by a "versicanorus sapiens". After summarizing the story of the "Chronicon Novaliciense" related to Walthario and having analyzed the four couplets in question, it is proposed that they are an "epitaph" in praise of the heroic monaco.
